Banana Oat Muffins

Hello everyone, last Friday I made my kids these muffins and they loved them. I found the recipe to these at all recipes and I changed it up a bit than the recipe they originally posted, simply because I do not have flax seed on hand or whole wheat flour.  If you have those items on hand you can sub out the white Ap flour and add the flax seeds to your bananas.  So here is my version and I hope you enjoy them however you make them.  Keep in mind these are not made with butter or oil because of the fresh bananas and milk it would be too soupy if you added oil or butter too.  Ok onto the recipe!


1/2 cup of quick cooking oats
1/2 cup of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Egg
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 mashed bananas
pinch of salt to bring out the sweetness of the muffin
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour or whatever you have on hand


Pre heat your oven to 350.  Grab two mixing bowls one is for your wet ingredients and sugar and the other bowl is for your dry ingredients.  In one bowl add in vanilla, egg, sugars,milk, and bananas (mashed).  Mix those ingredients together, you can use a hand mixer or you can mix this by hand the choice is yours.  Next add oats, flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  With a fork mix all the dry  ingredients together just until they are all combined.  Now slowly add in the dry to the wet ingredients, this prevents the batter clumping. Once the wet and dry ingredients come together add the rest of the dry ingredients.  Mix it all up and add to either muffin cups or directly to your muffin tin.  Bake in the oven for about 12-15 minutes and let cool for about 5 minutes.  The muffins are a lot easier to work with when left cool.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and Live, laugh and love.

This is what my muffins looked like before I cooked them:


  1. Thanks for the recipe! I miss your posts here and on youtube. Hope all is alright!

  2. Hi Cindi, Yes everything is fine, we have been very busy and distracted lately. First it was my new camera taking forever and a day to upload and I think we have finally worked the kinks in it out and then I started selling scentsy products for no other reason besides the fact that I love their products and love smelling good things. Then our kids have had a vacation and there is no way I can get anything done when they are out of school for the week. Most recently we adopted a cat at our local Humane Society, so I wanted to make sure she was well adjusted and the fact of playing with her just enjoying her that has been taking up our days. However I will be back on track soon. Thank you so much for your patience I really appreciate it. Take care and God bless.

  3. Now I am ready to do my breakfast, when having my breakfast coming over again to read further news.
